THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BOREDOM PRONENESS AND SOLITARY SEXUAL BEHAVIORS IN ADULTS
Abstract:The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between boredom proneness and some solitary sexual activities among adults such as masturbating and viewing pornographic films. The results of multiple regression analysis showed that sexual unsatisfaction and boredom proneness were significant predictors of people's engaging in such activities, and the analysis of variance revealed that highly boredom-prone individuals were more likely to engage in such solitary sexual practices than were lower boredom-prone individuals.
